A meditative short film which explores spiritual and physical journeys, seen from the perspective of Sufi culture and traditions. The film features the music of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and the mesmerising whirling of a dervish (Sufi ritual). It tells the story of a young boy, his taxi-driving father and his wool-spinning grandfather, and their search for home.
